Act 5, Scene 5

  • Of course now she's shocked by what she's seen.
  • Dorine tells them all not to be so ungrateful (sarcasm alert!); after all, Tartuffe's just trying to rid them of all the earthly things that are separating them from heaven.
  • Orgon tells her to shut up.
  • Cléante reminds everyone that they still don't have a plan.
  • Elmire proposes that they let everybody know what a liar and cheat Tartuffe is, in the hope that the resulting backlash – let's call it really, really bad publicity – will prevent Tartuffe from carrying out his plan.
